SELECTING FOCAL LENSES
(Standard 75fl Lenses)
(60″H x 50″W x 36″ from Ceiling)
C = Distance from ceiling to top of art
D = Distance from wall
C + 1/2 of art height + 6″ = D
36″ + 20″ + 6″ = 72″ or 6′ back from wall
Your circle of light on the wall will be 63″ Approximately 43 foot candles of light*
*See grey shaded area in photo metrics chart
CHOOSING BEAM SPREADS
Each Phantom Lighting kit contains one 39mm focal cone, two 75fl, 39mm focal lenses, two PVC lens spacers and one lens retainer clip. Optional 150fl, 39mm lenses are available for long throws that require a very tight field of light and sharp focus.
Note: Consult factory at 800-863-1184 should you need assistance selecting a beam pattern or to solve issues related to poor focus. You can also contact your local lighting representative for immediate assistance.
VERY NARROW BEAM SPREAD (VNB)
Lens, thick spacer, thin spacer, lens, focal lens clip
NARROW BEAM SPREAD (NB)
Lens, thick spacer, lens, focal lens clip
WIDE BEAM SPREAD (WB)

VERY WIDE BEAM SPREAD (VWB)
Lens, lens, focal lens clip
OPTIMIZE BEAM SPREAD
When selecting a lens combination or beam spread, the objective of the installation is to cover the art with the smallest circle of light. Of course, the top corners of the art are your main concern and will dictate the field size as shown in the illustration. It is always best to test before mounting the housing if the art is available. If the art is gone or undetermined, use paper or cardboard taped to the wall to verify your selection. The optimum aiming angle is 45 degrees to the center of the art, and may be adjusted for jobsite conditions, frame shadow, or glare.
Your Phantom optical framing projector comes with 3 different shutter assemblies. Each shutter assembly is specially designed to compliment a particular beam configuration by adjusting the light to follow the curvature of the lens. This allows for clean, straight lines, regardless of the aiming angle. Combination of different shutters can be used to handle unique situations. Note: Longhorn shutter should be used only when projector body interferes with mounting cradle on long throws, prohibiting installation or proper adjustment.
NARROW BEAM SHUTTERS
This set of (4) shutters is used for narrow beam applications and can be identified by rounded finger tabs.
WIDE BEAM SHUTTERS
This set of (4) shutters is used for wide beam applications and can be identified by square finger tabs.
VERY WIDE BEAM SHUTTERS
This set of (4) shutters is used for very wide beam applications and can be identified by indented and rounded finger tabs.
OVERSIZED BEAM SPREADS
An oversized painting can be accommodated by using two Contour Projectors, mounted at oblique angles. NOTE: For best results remove one shutter blade from each projector to allow light from both projectors to overlap and softly fade. Otherwise, a sharp image may appear on light colored objects that are undesirable.
PROJECTORS OPEN SHUTTERS
PROJECTORS ADJUSTED SHUTTERS
CHECKING FOR GLARE
To check varnish glare, use your projector or a bright flashlight and a second person to determine where the best location is. Sometimes the projector will be off center of art for best results from viewing angle. Depending on the position of art you may not succeed in eliminating objectionable glare.

ADJUSTABLE METAL SHUTTERS
Each Phantom Projector comes with three different shutter assemblies that are specially designed to compliment a particular beam configuration by adjusting the light to follow the curvature of the lens. This allows for clean, straight lines, regardless of the aiming angle.
METAL CONFINEMENT SLIDE
A Brass Metal Slide is used on custom cut templates that contour the light to multiple or irregular objects such as sculptures. To illuminate multiple objects on the same wall they must be installed in a collage format. Check out our gallery for images of the Phantom Contour Projector in action.
ELECTRONIC WIRING INSTRUCTIONS
Hatch® electronic transformers are standard on all Phantom Contour Projectors. This transformer has a built in safety device and is designed to power down or shut off in the event of a short in the system. The BLACK and WHITE wires represent the supply voltage or input voltage to the transformer. The two RED wires represent the output voltage or 12 volt AC output going to the fixture. Other input voltages such as 220, 240 and 277 are available as an option as well as 50 Hz models available for our European customers.
MAGNETIC WIRING INSTRUCTIONS
The Q-Tran® magnetic transformers with built in thermal protector are optional on all Phantom Contour Projectors. This transformer has a built choke coil to reduce noise levels to about 17db which is well below audible levels of 26db. Dual input voltages of 115V and 120V for extending lamp life. The RED and WHITE wires provide 115 volts to the transformer. The BLACK and WHITE wires provide 120 volts to the transformer. The two BLUE wires represent the output voltage or 12 volt AC output going to the fixture. Other input voltages are available for 220, 240, 277 and 50 Hz models for European customers in large quantities by special order only.
The Contour Projector is designed to use a special Ushio JCR12V-75W/FO MR16 halogen fiber optic lamp for optimal performance and light uniformity. Use of any other lamp, without the same characteristics as the Ushio, will result in unsatisfactory results. Consult the factory at 800-863-1184 for questions or to order replacement lamps.
